About Trillium Antiquarian Books

Welcome to�Trillium Antiquarian Books�where you can search or browse our collections of antiquarian books on�Country Life�and�Natural History�-- scarce books, from A to Z, on angling, animals, apiculture, bees, birds, botany, Darwin, farming, fish, flora, fruit growing, gardens, geography, grapes, herbals, horticulture, landscapes, mammals, orchards, ornithology, seeds, vegetables, wildflowers, zoology... and likely several other matters which do not come readily to mind.

Search and browse, too, our antiquarian�Canadiana�and�Literature�collections. In our�Canadiana�collection you will find the early works of Moodie, Traill, Davies, Bouchette, and others from Upper and Lower Canada. Our antiquarian�Literature�collection makes room among its novels, sermons, and poetry for some rare works by Mark Twain and Stephen Crane.

Sometimes all that's left of an old book is the pictures. You will find antiquarian prints�and maps together�with entire�illustrated books, in Trillium's collection of�Images�from antiquarian sources.

If you spend any time hunting up books, you are bound to come upon an occasional book so odd or idiosyncratic as to be irresistible. Proof of the proposition is to be found in the�Trillium�collection of intriguing�Curiosities. Since their comings and goings are unpredictable, it's usually worth stopping in for a short browse.

Trillium Antiquarian Books�has been selling scarce, out-of-print books on the Internet since 1998 and, earlier, by traditional mail order. Look for us at book fairs in Ontario and the American northeast, where we have exhibited during the past ten years or so. We are always interested in buying antiquarian books in our areas of interest, whether single volumes or complete collections.

Trillium Antiquarian Books�is owned by William Van Nest, Peterborough, Ontario, Canada.�Trillium Grandiflorum, from which we take our name, is the provincial flower of Ontario and appears in snowy white drifts among the hardwoods each Spring. One of several trilliums resident in the back garden furnished the images on our web site (www.trilliumbooks.ca).
